I knew blogging everyday for the 31 days of August would open up some weird experiences and energies, and four days in the energetic awareness is not disappointing! I’ve been feeling a lot today. Some amazing things about amazing projects that I get to be a part of, and some less than magical things because, hey, I’m a human experiencing this journey called Life, too. So today, I write this blog both to remind myself of these powerfully peaceful philosophies just as much as I write about them to offer you the insight, wisdom, and guidance that can carry you along your journey.
Life is a journey and a process, and I was reminded today that we must allow ourselves space to experience that in the most graceful and aligned way that we can. I was reminded of a few of the things that are the most important to my journey and I was called to share those things with you today. I know they will guide you divinely. They will bring you home to yourself, and carry you forward in your journey.
Follow Your Signs –
Especially when they don’t make much sense. Follow your signs. The signs you know are made for you. Like the one crystal owl totem in the metaphysical store, even if you aren’t sure of what it means you know it is for you and it has things to teach you. The butterfly that lands on your leg during meditation. The angel numbers you’ve been seeing all day. See those signs, understand what they have to share with you, and follow their guidance.
For those of you unfamiliar with this kind of thing, I’ll share with more simplicity and clarity. You know when you have seen a sign that is yours, and that is guiding you. It is so important along this journey of Life to trust in those signs, because they are divine gifts of guidance, and allow them the guide you and serve you on your path.
Know the Divinity Within Everything –
Following that divinity train mentioned above, I’d like to offer something that can really help you to trust in Life and the experiences it can bring you. To know the divinity within everything means to have awareness and understanding that every single thing that occurs on this earth, within our lives and the world, is meant to be the way it is. This includes the guy that cut you off on the highway, the negative experiences you find yourself in during life, or the way things seem to fall apart at times.
Allow Your Mess To Move Through You –
And here we deepen the dance with Life. Can you allow your mess to move through you, rather than fighting it yourself, or breaking through it’s limitations? If you can allow your mess to move through you with openness and compassion toward yourself, you will find the experience to be more gentle, and much more wise than you maybe would have been open to if you were fighting against your darkness or mess(es) in Life. Breathe. Trust in the process. Continue to dance. And allow your mess to move through you.
Lean Into Gratitude –
When sh*t is hitting the fan or you are feeling triggered by something negative in your life, it can be incredibly important to lean into gratitude. Not only to keep things balanced and keep your energy high, but also to cultivate an intentional energy of abundance that can be amplified, instead of whatever negative energy you may be dealing with. Take gratitude in everything you can – the sunset, your beating heart and breathing lungs, the daisy you saw growing through the cracks of the sidewalk today, the way you were able to express your thoughts just as you wanted to earlier, the fact that you have a roof over your head and that you are always divinely supported, etc.
Give Yourself Space –
Perhaps the most important thing to guide you into trusting in the journey of Life and learning to dance with it. Allow yourself the space that is available to you so that you may come to trust, and learn to dance. Allow yourself the space to let your messes move through you, to lean into gratitude, to see the divinity within everything, and to follow your signs.
